Patient interest in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) remains incredibly high for people with aortic stenosis. As you may know, TAVR does not require an incision to the patient’s chest or ribs. In addition, patients do not go on the heart-lung machine and some patients are in the hospital for just one day.

At the same time, patients are concerned about the stroke risk associated with TAVR procedures. For this reason, we just interviewed Dr. Isaac George, a TAVR expert that has performed over 6,000 TAVRs, to learn more. Click here to see my interview with Dr. George about TAVR and stroke risk.
